@cancel so you're happy that 1/1000th of what floats in that part of the oceans has been removed. 8 MILLIONS of tons enter the oceans EVERY YEAR. this is the usual kind of feel-good project that seduces so many, while not solving nothing at all: if you shave 1mm from 1m you failed miserably, if it's 1mm from 8km (a year)... this kind of problem is much better faced at the social and legal levels than with naive engineering.
@cancel actually I did read the whole page of the project when it was presented and I confess that I liked it before doing some back of the envelope calculations. I just told you what I think about it and you started the name-calling. ciao, stammi bene.
